As kids, we all thought our parents had fail-proof universal wisdom. But today, some hilariously funny parents on Twitter beg to differ. Their 280-character stories will make you giggle and laugh out loud, and if you’re a parent yourself, you’ll find yourself nodding in agreement and sighing “Saaaame!” more than once.
Here are 15 Twitter masters who exclusively tell the world the unfiltered truth about parenthood.
Enjoy these funny parents:
15.) Kelly Oxford (@kellyoxford)
Twitter bio: NYT bestselling author. writer. huge fan of your work.
The reason we love her: She’s the amazing mom of 3 kids and is a New York Times bestselling author. Some of this funny parent’s words have been bought by companies like Warner Brothers, CBS and NBC for film and television.
14.) James Breakwell (@XplodingUnicorn)
Twitter bio: Comedy writer. Pig owner. Dad of 4 girls ages 8 and under. Internet famous. Real-life nobody. My book saves lives: Only Dead On The Inside
The reason we love him: He’s earned the Dad-of-the-Year title more than once with his witty tweets. If you want to follow the adventures of James and his sweet little daughters, you’ll be happy to learn that you can purchase his book Only Dead On The Inside: a Parent’s Guide To Survive The Zombie Apocalypse.
13.) Oops!…I Dad It Again (@NewDadNotes)
Twitter bio: Dad Jokes and Pop Culture.
The reason we love him: His bio sums it all up. NewDadNotes knows how to make the ultimate dad joke and taught his toddler how to make him coffee on the K-Cup machine. We consider this a win.
12.) Josh (@iwearaonesie)
Twitter bio: husband, dad, sometimes inappropriate. I get gummy bears drunk and beat things until they’re a dead horse
The reason we love him: Josh gives us an amusing sneak peek into the life of a working father. And we take his word for it: finding a balance between teaching his kids not to swear and surviving unending work meetings is not a task for the faint of heart.
11.) SpacedMom (@copymama)
Twitter bio: Writer of freelance copy. Cultivator of small humans. Documenter of absurdity.
The reason we love her: What more can we expect from a funny parent/writer on Twitter, other than crazily pertinent and unique mom stories? Spaced Mom will tell you all about the reality of parenting and still make you chuckle.
10.) The ParentNormal (@ParentNormal)
Twitter bio: Chris Cate, imperfect dad of 3. Writes comedy. Hosts @ParentNormal Podcast.
The reason we love him: With a crash-course book on parenting under his belt, Chris knows a thing or two about being a dad. As he puts it so well in his book as well as his tweets, he will make parents laugh when they want to cry.
9.) mark (@TheCatWhisprer)
Twitter bio: Nobody wrote ‘stay cool’ in my yearbook, the only signer was my math teacher Mr. Johansson and he just wrote ‘Mr. Johansson’
The reason we love him: His tweets about his toddler and his own tribulations as an adult are refreshingly honest. If nobody wrote “stay cool” in his yearbook, we’re sure all the internet is considering Mark one of the coolest dads of Twitter. So who wins here?
8.) Mommy Owl (@Lhlodder)
Twitter bio: Writing and literature professor. UC Berkeley alum. Social Media Manager for @GrownandFlown, @HuffPostParents, @Buzzfeed, @ReadersDigest, @ScaryMommy, and more.

7.) Katie (@good_one_rick)
Twitter bio: Bio, bio, biodegradable.
The reason we love her: From realizing that parenthood involves an outstanding amount of poop to trying to sneak out of a club at 10:15 pm, Katie doesn’t hold back when tweeting about her daily mommy adventures.
6.) Dadpression (@Dadpression)
Twitter bio: Writer, dad, person with feelings. Providing parenting updates from the field.
The reason we love him: While the majority of his tweets will make any dad (or any other person, really) laugh, Dadpression still takes the time to appreciate the little things life offers you as a parent, like the joy of celebrating the Fourth of July with his kid or the bliss of hearing your son say “I love you.”
5.) Anecdotal Birthcontrol (@PedersenAhmed)
Twitter bio: 2 toddlers, 2 dogs, a Husband, and a Twitter account.
The reason we love her: She can manage to raise two kids, care for two dogs, go to the gym and report it all hilariously on Twitter. There is hope for the rest of us parents out here.
4.) Stephanie Ortiz (@Six_Pack_Mom)
Twitter bio: For Sale: M.A. in English, like new. Sold by overworked, over-caffeinated mom of 6. Writer & blogger featured in @Buzzfeed, @USAToday, @HuffPostParents & more.
The reason we love her: If you’re wondering what life with six kids would be like, Stephanie’s got real answers for you. She hilariously documents her tribulations on Twitter, whether it’s about her kid’s school, vacation or married life.
3.) Jessie (@mommajessiec)
Twitter bio: *awkward silence* Mom to four, wife to one. Like I am to most things, I came here late too.
The reason we love her: Jessie keeps things real. She openly shares the hassles of taking kids to the supermarkets, teaching them math and convincing her kid to say no to travel sports teams.
2.) Jennifer Lizza (@outsmartedmommy)
Twitter bio: When my kids grow up I’m going to knock on their doors & demand to know what’s for dinner. Then I’ll cry & use all the ketchup. Contributor @Today_Parents
The reason we love her: She traded her corporate job for a stay-at-home-mom career, but she soon realized that the latter was way more difficult than the first! She writes on her blog, OutsmartedMommy, and has been featured on The Huffington Post, Today Parents and Mamapedia, to name a few.
1.) Robert Knop (@FatherWithTwins)
Twitter bio: Big fan of my twin 8yos (M and L) and my wife. Love comic book movies. Featured in @HuffPostParents, @mashable, @BuzzFeed, @parentsmagazine, @babble
